30 Days

Here’s the dilemma. You’re fat. You’re weak. You’re “fill in whatever negative adjective you believe yourself to be here” AND it’s almost swimsuit season. W!T!F! do I doooooo?

I KNOW, I’LL DO A “CHALLENGE.” Ya know, like what Jillian says I should do. A shit ton of reps with one exercise for 30 days and I’ll wake up fabulous on day 31. Right?

Cuz  the whole January 1st ‘Train for 12 weeks and look like a fitness model’ thing didn’t quite work out for you. Right? Why? Hmmmmm, maybe cuz gimmicks don’t work.


Long term programming; long term goals; tweaks here and there as necessary. Solid lifts. Solid food. LONG TERM. If you don’t understand that because you’re new, that’s ok. Find a good coach and get some help. If you REFUSE to understand it because you’re stubborn and still want to eat/lay around/do nothing as you please but want 30 day ABz or SQUATz or whatever the hell you think you’re doing driving your body into the ground? You deserve the results. Have fun with that.

And for those of you deciding to do a 30 day “X” challenge in the middle of your season of sport? HeckYa! That’s the perfect time to fuck yourself up. Go for it.

After all, Jillian endorses it. And she’s a great coach. Right?

My idea of exercise is a good brisk sit.
